WEST COLUMBIA, SC — — Deputies are looking for a man who early Saturday robbed a convenience store outside West Columbia.
The armed robber came into the Exxon Pitt Stopp at 125 Rolling Meadow Lane dressed in all black with a black bandana covering his face. He told everyone inside to “shut..up, and get on the ground,” according to a Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report.
Then, he went to the store’s clerk and tried to get her to open the safe. When she said she couldn’t, the robber told her to give him money from the register. The man took more than $100 cash and left the store in a red sedan.
There were several people inside the store at the time of the robbery, according to incident reports.
The robber and his getaway car were both captured on surveillance footage, deputies said. If you recognize the man or know anything about the incident, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or www.sccrimestoppers.com
